Challenge Ciclista A Mallorca - Race Overview

The ORICA-GreenEDGE European campaign began in Mallorca and concluded with three top ten places over four days while the team contended with a nasty stomach bug that swept through the squad. Michael Matthews sprinted to seventh place on the first race and sixth place on the second race while Michael Albasini posted a seventh place finish on the final day of the Challenge Mallora. Simon Yates narrowly missed the top ten on the hardest days in the hills. The young Brit was in 12th place, with a group of around 40 riders that came to the finish line 27" behind the solo winner (Michal Kwiatowksi).
